153-17, 18 and 19 Blatz, Old Heidelberg, Castle and Beer are the same color as the body of the can. On 153-20,21 and 22, these are in white

@gorrister Here are some pictures that may show it better. Sometimes it hard to get the images to show the true colors.

USBC 153-17/19

USBC 153-20/22 (White lettering)
LP335b.jpg

USBC 153-20/22 (White lettering) come with the "Patents Applied for" above and below "Cap-Sealed". The "below" variation is the earliest.

USBC 153-17/19 come with and without the 1938 copy write date. Without is the latest variation.

Please note that the pictures in the digital supplement have colors that are closer to the original as well. The reds and blues are less dark.
